After #metoo, many companies are conducting employee surveys of harassment and discrimination, but few have undertaken as comprehensive a survey as Danske Bank has just done.
The results will be used as a springboard to becoming an even better workplace.
As part of our efforts to create an inclusive working environment characterised by high employee satisfaction, the bank undertook an extensive survey in collaboration with Ennova - a market leader in employee surveys - of the Group's 22,000 employees across all markets in spring 2022.
'Instead of having an overall sense of whether harassment and discrimination occur at Danske Bank, we were keen to undertake a detailed and focused survey of the area. This is the first of its kind in the bank and I expect very few - if any - such comprehensive surveys exist in Denmark,' says Karsten Breum, Chief People Officer at Danske Bank.
Around 13,000 of the Group's 22,000 employees responded to the survey - which included questions on whether they had experienced discrimination, harassment or bullying in the past 12 months.
Among respondents, 2.7% said they had experienced bullying, discrimination or harassment, while 0.7% had experienced sexual harassment.
The results also showed that just 30% of incidents are reported.
This is the first of its kind in the bank and I expect very few - if any - such comprehensive surveys exist in Denmark.
